I sure hope everyone is enjoying summertime. It’s flying by around here. Can you believe the 4th of July is only a week away? I’m looking forward to it though. Independence Day is a grand time to celebrate with friends or family, and tasty food is always a welcome part of that celebration, especially ice cream.

And if you’re an ice cream fan like me (or if you’re not an ice cream fan, but just like to mix things up), you’re in for a treat today.

One winner will be able to mix up whatever frozen favorite tickles their fancy (among other things) with their own KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer AND a KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker attachment! Yep. Cool huh?

In true festive Independence Day form, the lucky winner will choose one KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer in red, white or blue–that’s one mixer in one of these colors. Although a customized red, white, and blue mixer would be mighty fancy. (Exact color choices are Empire Red, White, or Cobalt Blue.) ****WINNER HAS BEEN SELECTED – SEE BELOW****

And again, the winner will also receive one of these bad boys, the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker attachment, to accompany the mixer.

I’ve used several kinds of ice cream makers over the years and have been pleased with the ease of this KitchenAid version. It attaches easily to the fabulously multifunctional KitchenAid mixer to churn out soft serve ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sorbet in about 15-20 minutes. You can easily transfer the finished batch to the freezer to harden up if desired. I made this yumilicious version that I shared yesterday, Blueberry Pie Ice Cream.

And what can I say about the KitchenAid Stand Mixer? It’s a mighty workhorse in our kitchen. With so many attachments, like the Ice Cream Maker, it pushes multifunctional to a whole new level. I’m looking forward to eventually trying the pasta attachments too. They look like fun!
